6/27/2022 - Global Design Project/Sunday Stamps - A Card to Say Hello

Happy Monday! Today’s card is using Sunday Stamps (sketch) and Global Design Project (color) challenges. I used the 2022-2024 In-Colors DSP stack for the big panel in the middle and paired with cardstock. The flower pieces are cut out with Sending Dies and added Gold Pearls to give a pop factor for the card. I also stamped the sentiment as the same color as DSP. Hope you enjoyed this card I am sharing today.

6/24/2022 - TGIF/CAS/Just Add Ink - Thank You (with Shaded Summer)

Happy Friday! Today’s card is using 3 challenges (see below) and I started the card by picking Fresh Freesia as the color scheme and I stamped the floral image on the cardstock to create a tone on tone effect and decided to stamped the sentiment on Whisper White so it’s more visible. I also think it’s a little to PALE so I finished the card with White Dots toward the bottom of the card. I hope you enjoyed this card I am sharing today!

6/20/2022 - Inspired.Create.Challenge #119 / Global Design Project #348 - Sending Birthday Wishes

Happy Juneteenth day! Sadly my company is open so we will have to work but it’s been a slow day and I have to submit payroll. Today’s card is using Global Design Project #348 and Inspired.Create.Challenge #119 (Color). I enjoyed all 5 In-Colors for this card and I really like Verity’s sample and decided to use it as a starting point for my card. After I finished, I wished that I moved the whole images more toward in the middle of the card, rather than up on top. This is definitely a great bundle that you should get from the current annual catalog! Thank you for stopping by.

6/20/2022 - Make My Monday #177 Coloring - Hello There

Welcome back to Make My Monday and this week we are doing Coloring – any medium and it was a theme I picked! Every since I was little I enjoyed coloring books and now even as an adult, I still love it! I picked a really cute image of Llama to color with Stampin’ Blends. I paired it with the new Hostess DSP from the annual catalog. I finished the card with a very simple sentiment and layer it on top of Crumb Cake. I hope that you like the card I am sharing today and be sure to join us at the challenge!

6/17/2022 - CASE-ing Tuesday #360

Happy Friday – for some people this is a long weekend due to Monday (Juneteenth) being a new holiday. Today I created a card using FB CASE-ing Tuesday from page 113 from the current annual catalog. I always love stripes that we can use the DSP as we all have many of those scrape pieces. I I used the colors on DSP to find a color pallet for the rest of the card. Instead of the sentiment stripe, I used a twine instead. Hope you enjoyed this card!
